      Description

      The licence bitstream in the bundle LICENCE inherits its rights like the bitstreams in the bundle ORIGINAL and might be thus restricted.

      The setting:
      webui.licence_bundle.show = true
      will create a link to show the licence but a user with unsufficient rights will be unable to view it.

      The licence should be anonymously accessible if the setting to show the licence is enabled.

      In contrast the extraced text is made anonymously readable regardless of the items restrictons and this might expose restricted content (this latter issue is now reported as bug DS-2442)
